Real-life Barbie and Quen?
Netizens reacted after seeing Kapamilya stars Janine Gutierrez and Enrique Gil interact in an episode of Kapamilya variety show ASAP.
The unexpected trend began when Enrique returned to the limelight with his performance of “Teach Me How To Dougie” in the program as part of his promotional activities for his upcoming movie, “I Am Not Big Bird.”
Meanwhile, Janine, along with singer Erik Santos, took the role of interviewing the actor-dancer after his performance.
The pair’s interaction captured in a short video clip went viral on social media platforms where Enrique was seen giving an intense gaze and constantly smiling while facing Janine.
Many online users engaged in lip-reading as Enrique appeared to whisper compliments to Janine.

The unexpected chemistry between the two stars fueled excitement among fans, who expressed their desire for a collaboration or project featuring the two artists.
Enrique was formerly paired with his reel-to-real-life partner Liza Soberano, fondly known as “LizQuen”.
The pair is currently hounded by breakup rumors as netizens noted fewer interactions from the couple. Meanwhile, both artists have openly expressed their decisions to focus on their solo projects while supporting each other in their endeavors.
